Information about the radio

WSFM's main frequency is 101.7 MHz on the FM band, with two repeaters in the outer suburbs of Sydney: 88.3 MHz in the Macarthur region, and 99.1 MHz centred in the Richmond/Hawkesbury region. It previously transmitted on 1224 kHz on the AM band; this frequency is now used by print-handicapped radio station 2RPH.

Liverpoool Broadcasting and Transmitting Co Pty Ltd was granted an AM radio license in the late 1970s, specifically to serve the Western Suburbs of Sydney. 2WS began broadcasting on 23 November 1978 from temporary studios in a relocated cottage at 2 Leabons Lane, Seven Hills with a 5 kW transmitter located at nearby Prospect. The studios subsequently moved, in October 1979, into a purpose built complex behind the old cottage in Leabons Lane. The original building was demolished, with the material donated to charity.

In the early 90's the station was granted an FM licence covering the full Sydney metropolitan area. Its new transmitter site was located at Artarmon, in northern Sydney. The official callsign was changed to 2UUS (using a literal 'double-U' to compensate for the extra letter required), although the station still identified as 2WS until 2001, when they changed their on-air name to WSFM.

2WS, 1224 on the A.M. band converted to the FM band and began broadcasting as 2WS-FM on 101.7 MHz in June 1 1993 at 8am

WSFM now broadcasts from studios at North Ryde. The building also houses facilities for KIIS 106.5 and The Edge 96.1, both also owned by the Australian Radio Network. The previous studios in Seven Hills are now serviced by Christian/Adult Contemporary radio station, Hope 103.2.
